Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have evaluated your query thoroughly.

* Possible gastric upset.
* Guidelines at present.

- Addition of ibuprofen can increase the discomfort by its possible side effect of stomach upset, so I do not recommend to add Advil with dicyclomine.
- Elavil can be taken along with dicyclomine without problems.
- Along with that, you require to take Proton pump inhibitor as omeprazole and tab. paracetamol.

- Drink more liquids in sessions.
- Take care in dietary intake as a preference for a soft diet and avoid spices.
- Do some walk, light exercises, deep breathing exercises to relieve pain faster.
- Check to have regular smooth bowel movements daily.

* Follow up after 24 hours or early as per the requirement.
